As we get closer to Thanksgiving there are lots of requests for donations. We would like to donate to every cause but it just isn’t possible. We would like to take a moment to talk about our two preferred charitable organizations.

Black and White Cat Walking in GrassSenior Pet Assistance Network (SPAN) – SPAN provides support the elderly pet owners in the Dallas area. They are an all volunteer organization. When seniors are unable to take their pets in to the vet for a check-up SPAN provides them with much needed help. They are also able to provide seniors with pet food is necessary.

SPAN is a valuable resource in our community. Without them many Dallas area seniors would be unable to keep their furry friends. Guardian Pet Sitters is a proud supporter of SPAN.

A Dog Running on The BeachSociety for Companion Animals: Operation Transport – Did you know that in some parts of the country there is a waiting list for adoptable dogs? Operation Transport takes dogs in Dallas off of death row and transports them to awaiting homes and shelters outside of Dallas. This is a huge undertaking. They require crates and bedding to transport the dogs and funds for purchasing space on flights.

Guardian Pet Sitters supports Operation Transport and their efforts to reduce overpopulation in Dallas. We love the idea of taking dogs with no place left and giving them a home that is just waiting for them.
